Eddo Brandes

Eddo Andr Brandes (born March 5, 1963, Port Shepstone, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa) is a former Zimbabwean cricketer who played in 10 Tests and 59 ODIs from 1987 to 1999.
He took a hat-trick in an ODI against England in January 1997 that is still regarded as the highest in terms of total average of the batsmen dismissed [1]. The Mirror ran a headline proclaiming "Clucking useless!; England lose to chicken farmer" to mark the occasion, making Eddo Brandes perhaps the most famous chicken-farmer to ever play cricket. Only two months short of his 34th birthday, he remains the oldest player to have taken an ODI hat-trick. He was more than just a one-series wonder, and his pacy outswingers could also have won Test matches had his fitness record not been so poor. Brandes was also a powerful late-order hitter with a good technique and an even better eye who once scored a first-class hundred in South Africa. He is also remembered for masterminding Zimbabwe's shock World Cup victory over England at Albury in 1992. Fed up with the deteriorating political situation, he subsequently emigrated to Queensland where he works as a coach.
